SCP Central Park™

New York's famed Central Park standardized around this exquisite luminaire created in 1980 to mate stylistically with the 1910 posts that still stand there today. SCP Central Park was the winner of a design competition conducted by the Central Park Conservancy and a Sentry exclusive. The SCP is justly celebrated for its tulip silhouette and botanical ornamentation in bas-relief.

Built to NYC's vandal resistance specifications with high-strength cast aluminum structure and polycarbonate globe. Several decorative bases are available for appropriate mating with a variety of ornamental posts.

SCP is designed to utilize a wide range of light sources, including LED, High Intensity Discharge (HID), and others. These light source families provide high efficiency in lumen output, service life and energy use.


All components and decorative base shall be high-strength ASTM 356.1 cast aluminum. Luminaire shall be fully welded creating one integral housing. Injection-molded polycarbonate globe, large dome and top cap shall create a weather tight chamber for the ballast assembly and internal optics. Top shall be easily removable to allow for relamping.


Injection-molded UV stabilized polycarbonate or high impact acrylic globe. Standard globe finish (Inside Scrubbed) creates a subtle light diffusing effect.

Available in a wide range of lamp choices and wattage ratings, including High Intensity Discharge (HID) and Incandescent. Synchronized reflector system optimizes light output utilizing upper and lower Alzak® reflectors.

Standard optical system, Inside Scrubbed Globe. Additional optical systems include Glare Reduction Louver System, Borosilicate Glass Refractor, Horizontal, Horizontal Semi-Cutoff, Horizontal Full Cutoff and Virtual Light Source.


Meets UL 1598 for Safety. Luminaire shall have porcelain socket rated for 600V with 4kV pulse and uses a nickel-plated screw shell with spring-loaded center contact and lamp grips. Luminaires shall be prewired and factory tested. The ballast shall be a high power factor, constant wattage, autotransformer type. The power factor shall be at least 90%.


To insure product durability, all exposed metallic surfaces shall be finished with a high performance coating consisting of high gloss Super Durable polyester powder coat paint to be applied utilizing a multistage process that includes phosphate pretreatment, electrostatic powder application, and convection curing.  Paint shall be weather, corrosion, abrasion, and UV resistant in compliance with the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s specification AAMA 2604-05.  Color to be specified.


Mounts to a Ø3” by 3” tall tenon. Three (3) 3/8”-16 UNC stainless steel allen head cup point set screws secure luminaire to post top tenon. All mounting hardware shall be stainless steel.
